1971 White House Conference on Youth. Recommendations and Resolutions.
A demographically representative sample of 915 youth, ages 14-24, who had achieved some kind of leadership among their peers, and 473 adults representing the leadership of the nation's institutions, were divided into 150 member task forces arranged around 10 issue areas: (1) the draft and national service; (2) drugs; (3) economy and employment; (4) education; (5) environment; (6) foreign relations; (7) legal rights and justice; (8) poverty; (9) race and minority group relations; and (10) values, ethics and culture. Their recommendations and caucus statements comprise the bulk of this report. Their challenge is to the government and power structures to respond to the proposals as a step toward reaching the unfulfilled potential of this nation which has left too many of its principles unimplemented.
